There is nothing like the internet to make you feel small.

Especially if your dreams are big.

On this Start Experiment journey I'm on, one thing I'm noticing is that although my little corner of the interwebs may be small, together all our goals and dreams add up to something that is really quite big.

When you feel small it's easy to hide behind your fears.

When you feel small it's easy to convince yourself what you have to say doesn't matter.

When you feel small it easy to fail once, convince yourself you never need to try again.

And if you've just yelled at your kids, lost it with your husband, asked God "DOES THIS REALLY MATTER AT ALL", messed up in so many ways, you begin to feel even smaller.

And once we feel small, it's so easy to convince ourselves we are useless too.

But, when you're part of something bigger, your dreams can no longer hide.
Your voice becomes louder and although you may fail, you have others around you to pick you up, dust you off and set you right back on your path.

The power of community is an amazing thing.

And here's the thing, no matter how small we may feel inside, we have the God of the Universe backing us up, cheering  us on, setting those dreams in our hearts and giving us the vision to carry them out.

Maybe like me you feel small today, like what you have to say and do just doesn't really matter at all.

Listen, I'm just an ordinary girl from Kansas, but I serve the powerful King of everything. . .

And you can't get any bigger than that, so I tell that nagging voice that says "You're to small to matter",
to step aside, I have a King to serve.

And that, My Friends, is no small thing.

In His service Always,

I'm linking up with Five Minute Fridays today. Stop by and check them out!

Hi Angie, I love your ending, because there are times when we need to pick ourselves up by the collar, and say the truth! And you nailed it. The enemy doesn't want us serving our King, because we will make a difference, no matter how small we feel. Anyway, I'm glad to have met you and glad you're serving here on the internet. Blessings!

I often feel small and lost in this big internet world. I am so thankful for a community of sisters that continue to encourage me to use my small offerings for the Lord for big things! His big things. So thankful I stopped by from the 5 Minute Friday! Blessings!
